Is there a way to disable skins on CS:GO so i can see only the default skin? I was wondering if skins decrease FPS(i barely get 50-60 FPS).

  • Skins are simple textures (ie. images). Except for a little memory usage, there is nothing that reduces FPS in CS:GO. Also: what are you using to play CS:GO? Even 5-7 year old PCs get way more than 60 FPS.

  • The issue is: Ultrabooks like yours are not meant to play games with. The integrated graphics are not capable of even simple 3D rendering. It's not a (V)RAM issue and removing some textures won't help. Try lowering the details especially AA and shadows to improve performance; that's all you can do.

  • By writing +mat_queue_mode 2 in the csgo launch option you will bost the fps slightly Feb 2 '16 at 15:30

No and no. Easiest way to increase FPS would be to lower your resolution. If you're playing in 1080p, try reducing to 720p. It puts less of a load on your GFX card/CPU.


enter image description here


Setting CS: GO To begin, open the STEAM library, then select "Properties" - "Startup Parameters" and insert the command data to a string:

  • Cl_showfps 1 - Shows FPS game -novid - Removes the Negro at the beginning of the game -threads 6 - ??? -high - Sets CS high priority -freq 60 - Frequency monitor upgrade -tickrate 128 - Tikreyt -dxlevel 81 - Version DX -noaafonts - Removes the font smoothing in -heapsize - Insert the number of your card 512MB = 393216 1GB = 786432 1,5GB = 1179648 2GB = 1572864 4 GB = 3145728

Next, go to the game, and then in the graphics settings, and change settings such as: Global Shadow Quality - Very Low

Model / Texture Detail - Low

Effect Detail - Low

Shader Detail - Low

Multicore Rendering - Enabled

Multisampling Anti-Aliasing Mode - 8x MSAA (Optional)

Texture Filtering Mode - Bilinear

FXAA Anti-Aliasing - Disabled

Wait for Vertical Sync - Disabled

Motion Blur - Disabled

Bonus++ )) Control Panel - Power Options - Setting the Sleep - Change advanced power settings - PCI Express - Power management link state - Value: Off.

Next, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, and in the list of "3D Settings", select "Manage 3D settings", select the Counter-strike: Global Offensive and enter these settings: The anisotropic filtering: OFF Vertical sync: Off ambient light Shading: OFF The maximum number of pre-trained staff: 4 Streaming Optimization: ON (If more than one processor) Upravlyaeniya Mode Power: Preferred maximum performance mode Anti-aliasing - Gamma correction: OFF Smoothing - Transparency: Off Triple Buffering: OFF Texture filtering - optimizing the anisotropic sample: OFF Texture filtering - Quality: High performance Texture filtering - negative deviation UD: Binding Texture filtering - Trilinear optimization: Off

  • Sorry, but the asked to disable skins, not a general optimization guide.
